828 Go Local Challenge

Spread the local love this February

It’s become an Asheville tradition to celebrate Love Asheville, Go Local Week around Valentine’s Day. This year, we need to give our local businesses more love than ever. Data shows that Locally owned businesses circulate 3 times more money back into the local economy than chain stores and as a community, we can give back! We’re partnering with the Asheville Downtown Association, Asheville Independent Restaurant Association, Just Economics and the City of Asheville to celebrate the entire month!

The 828 Go Local Challenge

Support 8 of your favorite local businesses over the 28 days in February!

Tag us on Instagram @golocalasheville, @avldowntown, @cityofasheville, @justeconomicswnc and @air_asheville and we’ll share your images and local experiences.

Use the hashtag: #828golocalchallenge

Keep an eye out for contests and giveaways including ways to win a 2021 Go Local Card and Love Asheville Go Local t-shirts (locally made by Spiritex), win VIP tickets to the next Downtown After 5 and Oktoberfest (whenever we’re able to do them live again) and so much more.
